Wow we were lucky to came to this wonderful restaurant. We were on our way to Reggio and trying to find a place for lunch. Terrific fresh seafood. Not all too much. Be aware of that. Just a pasta primo is not enough.

The swordfish was an excellent catch, but the preparation was superb! I've never had such a perfectly prepared swordfish served along with stuffed pasta shells with a food presentation and wine selection to match.

This restaurant is hidden from the traffic, located in a calm small street with a wonderful panoramic view of the sea sunset. Parking is right in front, and this is something rare for Pizzo. We took the degustation menu, with 6 courses for only €45! Great quality, innovation and service. I absolutely recommend it!

Actually I had already left a review (excellent) about San Domenico a couple of years ago. From that time I had many occasions to taste the delicious creations of chef Bruno and the outcome of the "tests" was always the same: pure satisfaction. Yesterday we had another demonstration of the level of the exaltation of the taste of the food... More

Bruno, the chef and owner, opened the restaurant for us! (It was supposed to be closed at noon this day) We were treated like kings..We had a table outside and we had very good food (fresh tuna, octopus, local fish...) and very good wine! Bruno is a talented chef, the presentation of the dishes is very beautiful. We definitely recommend... More

The place is very conveniently tucked away from the busy streets. Atmosphere is very romantic and view that opens from the balcony is amazing. Food is fantastic and well served. I would go there everyday if I had a chance! Best meal in town by all counts!

We have been for a family dinner and I should split my overall score in 3 parts: Amazing location with a fantastic view Good food but very depending on the dishes Disappointing service especially considering that the restaurant was not really full. I'd give it another try after the vacation time

The setting was very nice. The menu was interesting but the products used where cheap. Main fish options were swordfish and sea bass,in southern Italy you can do much better. They also only were willing to make me one type of gluten free pasta which contained swordfish. I am pregnant and can not have swordfish. The service was good when... More

My boyfriend and I went here based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The restaurant itself is down a quaint pedestrianised street, with an amazing view over the sea from the terrace. It's beautiful. The staff are so friendly and the menu is great, loads of different options. The food itself is amazing, very creative, beautifully presented and there's... More
